Nxw Orleans, August 12,1862. J
Sir?The new orderof tho duy, which bns been pi b
iwhcd thic morning, and by which you require that ail
and whatever arms which may lie in the possession o;
the people of this city, must be delivered up, has caused
the most serious alarm among the French subjects of
New Oilcans.
Foreigners, sir, and particularly Frenchmen, have,
notwithstanding the accusations brought agalns' som. of
them by certain persons, sacrificed everything to main
tain during the actual conflict the neutrality impose
open them.
When arms were delivered them by the munic'rui! an
tborlties, tbey only used them to maintain order and de
lend personal property ; and those arms have since almost
all been returned
And tt now appears, according to the tenor of your
order of the day, that French subjects, as well as citizen*
are rejnirod to surrender their personal arms, which'
oould only be used in self defence.
For some lime oast innnsukahle signs have manifested
themselv, s among the servile population of the city and
sunound.ng cotiutry of their intention to break the
bends whi. h bind tbem to their masters, and many per
sons apprehend au actual revolt
It Is the-,- signs, this prospect of finding ourselves com
pletely unarmed, in tho uresence of a population from
which the greatest oxcesse* are feared, that we aroabove
u.l things Justly starmed. for the result of ,- ach a stale
of things would fill on all alike who wore loft without
the means of self defence.
It is not dcn.ed that the prt lection of tho T'n'.tod 8ta??e
government would bo CMended to them id- such an
event, but tln.1 protection could not be ? lT,, ttv# at all
times and in all placer, nor provide against tli - ? internal
enemies whose unrestrained '?uisuagu arid im.no. r.i'are

There are P'jW gfty regimes la organised la the State.
These tac^ fcurle#n thousand men to fill them up to the
Dumber; but it a calculated the number '#m
tiled during the next ten days.
There will then remain 9,000 deficiency on tV ft rat cell
fbr 999,000 volunteers. Tbeee, with the ''rf,000?New
Ycrfc'a quota on the call Tor 300,000 men for nine months?
wit leave 08,000 men to be ruiaed in the ritato.
Ike government a pressing the Sute authorities
to name the earliest day on whftch the draft can com
menoe; but M ia believed here UmR the full number re
quired can be furnished by volunteering an feet an the
I government can equip and transport the men.
I Recruiting improves as the fall approachee.
H is found much easier to raise men for nine months
than three years.
The Sute has Tarnished several thousand, probably
eight or ten thousand,for the old regiments. If these are
allowed as an offset, the number to be drafted will be thus
much decreased.

In consequence of the complaints made by persons rela
tive to the conduct of our military hospitals in this city,
General Brown has been induced to write the following
letter?which covors the subject?to a contemporary:?
llBADqt'ARrsM, New York, August 22,1862.
Your paper contains an appeal of the ladles of the Park
Barracks to ofir benevolent citizens, in which they say:?
"They have now the mission at Bedloo's Island, where
there are six or seven hundred men, needing everything
which the charitable can bestow."
1 his, with the other hospitals in and about New York, is
under my command; and it is with much regret that I am
compelled, by a souse of justice alike to the government
and to the modical oflloera at that poet,emphatically to
deuy the correotneoe of the foregoing statement. The
government furnishes the sick and the wounded soldier
with everything necessary (b his health, his comfort and
his convalescence. Clothing la gratuitously furnished
wben lost in service, and issued when wanted, he giving
roceipts; so that he can have an abundance of every arti
cle necessary?or that he ought to have. His food is ex
cellent and abundant?more than, when well, he can est;
and ho Is supplied (Tom the hospital fond with such
articles as the doctors think suitable for the sick. Thoro
is a reading room, which is sup<>liod with newspapers by
the liberality of the editors of the city,and with pictorials
and other light reading by tho benevolent.
Permit me, Mr. Editor, to suggest to the benevolent
ladic* of oar city that our soldiers in'the field have many
of them left wives and children, who will more gladly and
thankfully receive the bounty which their liberality so
lavinhly bestows on the sick and wounded soldier, who
really does not need it. HARVEY BROWN,
Brigadier General and Military Commander.
Recruiting In th? State of How Jersey.
In every city and county of tbis loyal State recruiting

fidently assertod that drafting will not be had reoourse to

ence to tbo late call of President Lincoln for
more troops. Governor Olden is doing bis part
very zealously, and wben regimonts are formed and de
tachments for filling up tbo old corps already in tbe
field they are at once equipped and armed, and forward,

Thirteenth regiments are being filled up, and will soon

Uhly.aml will have her full quota of men made up, it is
stated, without a single man being drafted. The largo
surplus fund of nearly $2,000,000 is at tbe sole
coutrol of the Governor, who la disposing of it
In a way satisfactory to the State and the
benefit of the families of volunteers. The confidence
reposed In the Governor in regard to the disuosition or

The firemen of the city turned oai yssterdiy ffi (Tttf
parads cad in gfeat forco W> give nil eclat to the return of
Captain, familiarly Jack Downey, after thirteen month?'
imprisonment In the dungeons of tbe South. Net ataon
the First Fire (Kileworth) Zouaves?of which regiment
Captain Downey waa one of ih > most favorite <
left this oity on their march to Washington,
leadership of the brave and lamented Ellsworth, have
the firemen turned out in such numbers. Bums then*
indeed, no such occasion has called them forth ta
all distinctive individuality as that which brought them
together yesterday to greet with hearty weloome an oM
comrade?long mourned among them as dead?who hadl
gone through the peril of battle and the auflbrings and
privations of s protracted and sevsre imprisonment.
Captain Downey commanded Company D of the KUnworttt
Zouaves, and was always rsoognixed as the commleekmed
representative of tho New York firemen among thn
gallant band who weut forth to repel the threatened in
vasion of the capital of the country in April, 1801. AS
such, ana for his soldierly qualities, he, from the first,
stood high in tho estimation of Colonel Ellsworth*
than whom none was quicker to distinguish coolness
and integrity, the two ingrcdieuts of a g<>od soldier.
It was in the disastrous battle of Bull run that Captaim
Downey fell, v mntlod, into tbe hands of the enemy. Ih
was near tho close of the fight he received his wound,
lip to thai moment he wus one of the leaders of the gaU
lantZouaves who participated in all the attacks made bp
that regiment upon the overwhelming forces of thw
Aiding, commanding, animating all,
Where foes appeared to press or friends to fall
Be waa taken about tbe same time that Colonels (now
Brigadier Generals) Corcoran and Wiloox werw
captured, and, like them, since that time he has soft
fared all tbe horrors of imprisonment. He was release^
at the same time, and. as his fellow prisoners, and now
liberated comrade s have had their ovations so deservedly*
the Fire Department extended to him an ovation, am
hearty and as single in its purpose as any over extended
to man. CaptainDowney was also honore 1 by his for
mer coraradi s of tho Police Department, of which he warn
a membor at tho time of his enlistment into the Zouaves.
They, too, turned out in full force, and vi?d. though ib
must be said in a somewhat more grave and dignified
manner, as befitted their olflce, with the red shirts In
their heartiness of greeting and weloome.
In accordance -with tho programme the whole availably
force of firemen a. t jmllco rendezvoused at the Washing
ton Parade Ground at throe o'clock. Here they made am
imposing appearance; ai d, as company after company
filed out of tho enclosure, they were grietod with mosfi
vociferous cheering from tbe multitude there assembled.
It was after five bed.re the head of the column reached
the foot of Cortia:, !t street. This front wus not halted;
but a countermarch being ordored, tho whole force, by
this manoeuvre, passed each other, saluting Hue alter
Uuo aud company after company, until tbe front
on the route to fortlaudt street was agaiq
formod as the front in the regular procession. An
immense mass of people turned out to witness the spec
tacle, as is always the c 'so when tho red shirts display
themselves in force. During tho delay of awaiting th(f
arrival of their war tried comrade, ai d their now honor
ed guest, the gallant firemen formed waltzing parties,
along Cortlandt street and Broadway, their bands fur?
nishing splendid music, and for a time Br adway, from
the Park and Cortlandt street to the wharf, was a long
line of dancers. The coup d'(nl from the top of
Cortlandt street was us brilliant as could well bw
conceived. Firemen and Zouaves?the former
with their red shirts and helmets, the latte?
with their gay turbans and loose blue braided Jackets*
and a la Turk trowsers?mingled together in rapid whirls*
all stirred with a spirit of merriment and enjoyment onljt
to be called forth when the occasion is improvised, as it
was there.
At a quarter to six Captain Downey arrived on thfi
sey boat from Newark. He wus Immediately waited 01%
by Captain Helme, of the Eighth Ward Police, of whioh h?
had been a member, and by a committee from the Flr<?
Department. He was hailed with the greatest enthusNt
asm by bis former comrades of both services, and it wa*
